A little flex time
We are on a mission to change the way people buy, sell or use a car by creating the world’s best online car marketplace.
Flexible working approach
🌱 At carwow, we aim to create a culture where our team can thrive no matter where or how they work.
🧘 Most of our team are hybrid (1-2 days in the office although more if you like), although some of our roles can be done fully remotely from one of our 4 locations (UK, Germany, Spain and Portugal).
🏡 We offer a healthy home office budget of £500/€550 and are also open to looking at alternative working patterns to ensure carwowers can work in a way that works best for them.
Scoring against our flexibility index (1 = not at all flexible, 100 = couldn’t be more flexible, 51 is average) using a number of parameters to assess flexibility such as working from home, hours, frequency of travel, benefits, etc.
Scoring against our employee perception index (1 = not seen as flexible, 100 = couldn’t be happier with the flexibility, 51 is average) using a number of more emotional / perception based questions to understand whether employees feel supported and offered what they want. The areas we cover are work-life balance / managerial support / flexible benefits / working environment / and many others.
"I do really love the 'remote first, hybrid working' mentality at carwow. We also offer a work from anywhere benefit which allows us to manage our annual leave really well. Our hybrid working is super flexible, so I can really manage my personal life well."

Approach to diversity & inclusion
Although our business sits across two historically 'male' dominated industries (Automotive and Tech), we have a 'no excuses' philosophy to our D&I strategy.
Our vision is simple – we want to be the most diverse and inclusive company within the automotive industry, but we know we have a lot of work to do to get to where we want to be.
We have been introducing a number of initiatives to help us achieve this including:
- Checking our adverts for gender bias, and implementing anonymised CV screening.
- Rolling out D&I training for all employees.
- Reviewing our parental leave policies to make them more inclusive and considering aspects such as return to work and pregnancy or baby loss.
- Introducing Diversity Champions and launching our first employee networking groups.
- Making our workplace more thoughtful e.g introducing a diversity calendar, ensuring all company events are as inclusive as possible and giving back to the communities we work in.
We have a lot more planned for 2022, so watch this space!
